    Well it used to be an intrinsic part of Kirk. ;) And it would have been fun to see Pine hang onto that aspect of the character, to some degree. But it's just impossible to see how it could have been done without becoming absurd, so they were right to drop it.

    Overall, Trek XI showed good sense about what to keep and what to drop. For instance, a lot about Uhura was dropped, to very good effect, but very little was changed about McCoy and Spock, because they didn't need it.

    Wentworth Miller needs to hit the gym and get himself some abs. Then he'd be a great Namor! Besides, Zach will be busy playing Barnabas in my TV remake of Dark Shadows. :D

    ^ I'd rather see Wentworth as Matt Murdock in the Daredevil reboot.

    I'd rather have Michael C Hall as Daredevil.

    Shouldn't that be "Spock always had Namor's ears"? ;)

    Heh, yeah. Reminds me of how someone once asked if Martian Manhunter was supposed to be based on Spock, when MM predates him by a decade or so.

    I actually did know that the Sub-Mariner predated the Vulcan commander. Thought somebody might have pointed that out before now.

    I hear Abrams asked Pine to mimic Shatner's "Spock!" annunciation late on in the film in a specific scene, but I always thought that Pine's Kirk reminded me most of Shatner's in the Kobiyashi Maru scene, down to his line delivery!

    Do you mean "Bones!" at the end of the film?

    No, it was when Kirk and Spock were in the Jellyfish inside the Narada, and Spock was unsure about whether he'd be able to fly the ship, Kirk said something to the effect of "Spock!... You'll be able to fly it, trust me".

    "Starfleet Command has ordered us to rescue them... captain," was very Shatner-like in its delivery.

    Actually, it's occurred to me that given his character in Star Trek, the obvious superhero for Urban to play is X-Men's Beast.

    Think about it. ;)

    Reminds me of that X-Men/Star Trek crossover comic where Cyclops and Kirk are talking and McCoy and Beast are together and one of them goes "Dr. McCoy." and they both go "Yes?" and look at each other. Ah laughter and good times were had by all...

    THR's Heat Vision Blog has a report on the actors who have made it to the final round of test screenings (and Chris Pine isn't amongst them):

    Patrick Flueger woudn't be bad, but keep Jensen Ackles and Mike Vogel far, far away from Captain America!
